    I just found this forum, woo.

    But when reinstalling a rear end, or doing anything back in that region be extremely cautious of your brake fittings. If they're dripping out a bit of fluid - let them, trust me on this one. We ended up plugging one of these fittings mounted right underneath the trunk with an illfitting bolt, stripping it out. The piece was replaced from a friends car who I swore to him I would replace, and I've recently found out from a ford dealer this part has been OBSOLETED! (sp?)

    Long story short, let it drip and refill later! I'll post pics later, I really need to start on my homework.
